The USB KeyShark is a computer spy accessory that falls under the category “Just because you’re paranoid, it doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you”.
The small device plugs in between a keyboard and the computer, making it possible to record every single keystroke being made. Over a year’s worth of data can be stored on the 4MB built-in memory.
A microcontroller interprets the data, and stores information in memory and just like a USB key drive will retain information even without being connected to a power source.
To access the recorded data, you simply type menu in a text editor and the KeyShark comes to life. A menu is displayed with options to erase data, view data, search data for keywords, change password, or disable the device.
